Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.
You can skip the questions if you feel uncomfortable about them. However, we still encourage you to complete the whole survey, as it will help us develop a deeper understanding about the socio-emotional impacts of intergenerational play.
We use well-defined scales to understand whether intergenerational play affects your perceptions towards old people. There are some negative statements about old people in the survey. However, the purpose is to balance positive and negative statements to improve the validity of the survey rather than make you hate old people. Some respondents may not read each statement if all of the statements are either positive or negative.
